How Not To Create a Smokey Eye Look

This video will certainly make you crack a smile. Three men try follow Michelle Phan’s smokey eye makeup tutorial and this is the result… Men Makeup with Michelle Phan

I know this is an oldie but it certainly still makes me laugh. Often I attempt a smokey eye and I alwasy end up blending it out to a more intense eye because it feels wrong or too dark for daytime but in all honestly its not too bad compared to these guys. I think I may just have the makeup thing down, well at least much better than these poor guys. Practice certainly does make perfect!

Can I just say that on the whole contour trend that they hit the nail on the head… Rub some dirt on your face 😀 LOL!!

Kudos to them for being such good sports and giving it their best try.

Half Dressed Models Pose With Coffins in a Calender

The world has used half dressed women to market totally unrelated products, to your normal half dressed women for ages generally to young men who are more interested in the girl in the picture than the product they are standing with and well, it works because sex sells, and this coffin firm is no different.

2014 calender aims to express 'perfect harmony between Lindner coffins and natural wood, blue sea, red flowers, green fields and beauty of the female body'

2014 calender aims to express ‘perfect harmony between Lindner coffins and natural wood, blue sea, red flowers, green fields and beauty of the female body’

Yes, you read correctly. Coffin firm, Lindner,  makes over 11,000 caskets a month and are the largest producer of coffins in Poland has released a 2014 calender featuring half dressed women showing their ASSets and posing alongside caskets.

Last year, the Catholic church in Poland condemned Lindner’s calender saying human death should be respected and not mixed with sex but that hasn’t deterred Lindner from producing their 2014 calender which is the fifth installment in their provocative adverts. The church was so bold to say that the calenders were ‘inappropriate’ but Zbigniew Lindner, the firms owner, defends them.

“My son had the idea of creating the company’s calender so that we could show something half-serious, colourful, beautiful; the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins, so much work goes into our coffins that are only seen for a few moments at the funeral. We wanted to show that a coffin shouldn’t be a sacred object – it’s furniture, it’s the last bed you’ll ever sleep in. It isn’t a religious symbol. Its a product. Why are people so afraid of coffins and not of business suits, cosmetics or jewellery?”

Beaucience for Men – Product Review

Good Morning Poutlings,

I trust that you are doing well, staying warm and taking vitamins 🙂

Today i’ll be doing a little product review on some skincare products for men.

Let me start off by informing you that I am in no shape or form affiliated with the brand or it’s products.

I received two products from this brand to review and of course I’m not a Man so I had my better half play guinea pig for me. He has been using the products for a week more or less now and being half ginger and only 3/4 human I could immediately see a difference. But before i get into that let me tell you a bit more about the brand.

Logo

“Beaucience (pronounced bo-ci-ons) is a proudly South African professional skincare brand specifically focusing on using natural formulations and organic ingredients where possible. With the combination of the unique peptide ingredients proteasyl (derived from pea plants) and essential oils, the results is a kind yet direct approach to ageing for men and woman. Beaucience has been designed for the more environmental conscious user making sure that our carbon footprint is low by using where possible South African ingredients, environmental friendly packaging, recyclable glass and bio-degradable plastic.

What makes Beacuience unique?

  • Essential oils are used to lightly fragrance the product
  • No parabens – we use natural preservatives
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Manufactured in a Soil Association certified manufacturing
  • Not tested on Animals
  • Trials with the products done in South Africa on human subjects over a period of 6-8 weeks
  • Proudly South African brand
  • An exclusive male and female anti-ageing and hydrating home care range is available
  • An amenities range is available
  • A professional range for beauty salons are available
  • A retail range is available from pharmacies and health stores

So as I mentioned before I had my ginger viking make use of the products for a little over a week (aftershave balm and face wash) With him being a ginger and having VERY pale skin he has very sensitive skin and always ends up with a shaving rash I also forgot to mention that he has a very heavy metal beard (yes this too is red :P) With it being winter at the moment and the air being extremely dry we all tend to suffer from dry skin and he specifically has a really dry patch or rather rash within his beard, firstly because it does not get all the moisture and “air” it needs.

After using the products for two days we immediately noticed a difference in his skin texture and its elasticity (I would just like to add that both of us have a regular skin care routine with other products) Having a oily skin he generally has excessive oiliness and a shine but after making use of the products not only did he’s shine appear less apparent but the oil content in his skin also got more under control which also helped ease on the forming of papules and pastules. The rash within his beard has also become less of an irritation and more bearable, dry patches formed due to his facial hair has since vanished and become more moisturized leaving his skin softer and “younger” all over.

I would definitely recommend Beaucience to all men especially those with facial hair after seeing what it’s done for my viking with his.

Ridiculous Price Tag on a Stupid T-Shirt

Hi Pouters

Did you read about this custom t-shirt, the worlds “most expensive” t-shirt, made of crocodile skin? Take a deep breath, or many, because this is actually happening in the world.

stupid hermes t-shirt in question...

stupid hermes t-shirt in question…

How much would you spend on a t-shirt, realistically? I am talking about a t-shirt, something you pair with your jeans, or what you work out in, wear on casual day, wear for a walk, you know, a t-shirt…. Depending on the t-shirt itself and if it would guarantee that I would look completely drop dead gorgeous in it, at a push, I would probably spend up to R500… and that is even a lot. I’d much more likely to actually spend about 20% of that above mentioned price.

Now, think of how much money any of the men in your life would realistically spend on a tshirt? R350 maximum? Well, I can only speak for the men that I know in my life and well, R350 is pushing the boundary ever so slightly, but you know, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Hermes is already known for carrying a plain white t-shirt for $345, roughly R3,277.50, but the latest item in its invetory is simply just cold blooded, according to most opinions on the social media. I tend to agree.

Hermes have designed a croc-leather look t-shirt for menswear Spring/Summer that is retailing at a staggering price of $91,500, roughly R869,20.00 and it is now considered to be the most expensive t-shirt in the world. That price is apparently also missing retail tax of approximately $8,000, so the approximate price of this garment is: R950,000!!! price tag on stupid hermes shirt

The picture of the price tag clearly shows the $91,500 number. Made of crocodile this t-shirt looks absolutely horrendous!! Who wants a leather-y like freaking t-shirt??? Imagine how a man would sweat in that. Actually, any man who wanted to and/or elected to wear this deserves to actually sweat their balls off….

It’s not the first time that Hermes has stunned the world with a whopping price tag. Last year the brand presented a $2 million, roughly R19,000,000, Kelly bag version encrusted with diamonds although too small to hold anything and even earlier there was a red croc leather Birkin bag with white gold and diamond hardware was acutioned at $203,150, roughly, R1,929,925.

Despite the fact that a living creature had to die in vain in order for this t-shirt to be made, which is a whole different debate entirely, with less money I think I could buy my own crocodile and get a high end tailor to make a shirt of a similar nature.

This “fashion” is absolutely ridiculous. I shudder to think what is going to be the next thing to “top” this…

What do you think about this shirt, and its price tag?
